Meet the BEGOTs: These Actors Are Going for Gold at the BAFTAs

Originally posted 02/13/2014 06:00PM

If an EGOT – the elusive combination of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony that only 11 individuals have ever claimed – is one of Hollywood's highest honors, then it stands to reason that a BEGOT (that's an EGOT plus a BAFTA, and yes we did just make it up) is an even more impressive accomplishment. It's one better, is it not?

By our count, a mere four people have ever completed a BEGOT, and shockingly, only two of them were Brits: Audrey Hepburn, John Gielgud, Mike Nichols and Whoopi Goldberg. Still, nearly every artist in Hollywood should aspire towards a BEGOT (once they hear about it, that is), and Sunday night's BAFTA Film Awards offer a number of artists the chance to check off the next box in the BEGOT checklist.

Below, see the five stars working on their BEGOTs at the 2014 BAFTAs. Only one of them is British, which just goes to show you that the BEGOTs belong to us all, guv'nah.

Jenny McCarthy fits right in.

PEOPLE has the first photos of The View's newly-retooled cast of the daytime talk show for what appears to be a promising (and silly!) season ahead.

For the full cast photo, Whoopi Goldberg, 57, decides to wear her serious face, while Sherri Shepherd, 46, and Barbara Walters, 86, sport more traditional grins. The show's newest addition starts out serene, but quickly finds her goofy side in the following shots, dancing with Shepherd and posing alongside Barbara Walters in a form-fitting red dress and platform Mary Janes.

Jenny McCarthy Will Join The View

Originally posted 07/15/2013 11:55AM

One bubbly, perky – and outspoken – blonde is about to be replaced by another.

Less than a week after the departure of Elisabeth Hasselbeck from the syndicated daytime talkfest The View comes confirmation that Jenny McCarthy will succeed her when the show returns for its 17th season Sept. 9.

"YUP, I'M DOING 'THE VIEW'!" McCarthy trumpeted on her blog Monday. "When word got out that Joy [Behar] was leaving 'The View,' I knew that the timing of my desire and her departure might be serendipitous for me."

"Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor," the show's original host and co-executive producer Barbara Walters said in a statement released by ABC Monday morning.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Says An Emotional Goodbye to  The View

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Bids Emotional Goodbye to The View

After spending a decade on The View, Elisabeth Hasselbeck marked her final appearance on the ABC daytime talk show with an emotional goodbye.

On Wednesday, Hasselbeck, 36, walked arm-in-arm with Barbara Walters before taking a seat at the table for what would be her last time.

"The past 10 years have been nothing short of extraordinary," Hasselbeck said after thanking the show?s producer Bill Geddie and co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar – who announced earlier this year that she'll be exiting the show – Sherri Shepherd and Walters.

"I did some math last night, and I think I?ve have had over 3,000 days working by your side," she told Walters. "I can?t ask for a better leader or mentor. You are the best that there is."

Whoopi Goldberg's Lavish Behind-the-Scenes Lunch in N.Y.C.

Could Whoopi Golberg's next project be opening a restaurant of her own?

The View host recently stepped out for lunch at Delmonico's in New York, where she got a behind-the-scenes look at how the legendary restaurant operates.

Goldberg took a tour with the restaurant's executive chef Billy Oliva – and even got a history lesson (Delmonico's, near Wall Street on Lower Manhattan's Beaver Street, has been dubbed America's first fine dining restaurant).

"She was in a great mood. After her tour, Whoopi posed for photos with the staff," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She even went into the kitchen to pose with the sous chefs."

Barbara Walters: Elisabeth Hasselbeck Is Not Being Fired from The View

Not so fast.

Following last week's news that original co-host Joy Behar will be leaving The View, along with rumors that Brooke Shields will be coming aboard to replace Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Barbara Walters attempted to set the record straight on Monday's program.

Walters, who made her entrance at the top of the show on Hasselbeck's arm, looked at the camera and said she wished to address "a particularly false story." She said that reports that Hasselbeck's opposing political views, as expressed on the show, were not forcing her removal.

"We love Elisabeth," said Walters, who also said that the others appreciate her political differences, too.

While much of Hollywood is suffering from the flu, Barbara Walters has come down with the chicken pox.

The View host was hospitalized after injuring her head in a fall during inauguration festivities. She was transferred to a New York hospital late last week and remains there with her new infection.

"You all know that she fell and cut her head 10 days ago, and then was running a temperature, but it turns out it is all the result of a delayed childhood," her co-host Whoopi Goldberg explained on the air Monday.
